We stayed in this very nice hotel for two nights. I was expecting something different... For that price! instead the room was absolutely fantastic! Big room, big bathroom, very clean ... Very small hotel but really good! It's 10 minutes walk from the royal palace and to get everywhere you can take the fun tuk tuk, very cheap!
I would go there again. They do not serve breakfast but you can get complimentary tea,coffee 24/7 and some cookies!
It's not a 5-star hotel but for me it was the best hotel during my trip in Thailand!

I stayed one night at this hotel after i returned from Phuket at 1am, and because I had another hotel booking the next morning.

Can't say much since I stayed for less than 12hours.

1. Clean but not neat
2. Friendly staff
3. Close to Khao San Road but far from everything else
4. Prices? You can find cheaper with the same quality of rooms they offer
5. No breakfast, only packed cookies and tea bags and hot water boiler

Basically nothing special, eventhough i would only need a place to sleep in Bangkok since i spend most of my time out, i would stay value a good night sleep at a comfortable place.

The hotel is very nice compared to the ones available on this area of bangkok (within the same rate). We came with my girlfriend to spend New years in Ko Phan Gan so we crashed I'm bangkok for a couples of days.

The service is very caring and they are always finding a way to help you.

The only thing negative about this stay is the drunk folks arriving at 3 am. But I guess this is something all over bangkok. Usually I don't have a problem with that but my schedule there was (temples, markets, etc) in the early morning.

We stayed at Tara Place for 5 days on our recent trip to BKK.

The hotel is in a great location, only a 10 minute walk to Khao San Road, and with lots of great restaurant/food options in the vicinity.

The rooms were clean and well appointed - much better than a lot of the other hotels/guest houses in the Khao San area for the same price. Free wi-fi, free tuk-tuk service to the Grand Palace/Wat Pho and Khao San Road multiple times per day. Also free snacks and tea/coffee in the lobby.

The one downside is that the walls are paper thin and we were woken up a number of times by doors slamming or drunk idiots in the hallways. It IS close to Khao San so I suppose that is to be expected. If you're a light sleeper, bring some earplugs or perhaps consider other options.

That was out only complaint - would definitely stay there again.

Hotel is near grand palace and a lot of shopping. Free tuk tuk service to nearby attractions. Lots of restaurants in the area. Room was very clean and staff very attentive and friendly. We were woken up several times with doors closing, suitcases rolling. Walls are very thin. Room is pretty basic, nothing unique. It's one step above a nice hostel, but you get what you pay for.

Tara Place is located 10 mins away (walking) from Khao San Rd. The Hotel is very clean from the lobby to the rooms, great bathrooms, nice shower.The staff are friendly and helpful. Great breakfast! I only have to suggestions: The housekeeping needs to improve as one day they had not made up the room at 3pm. Luggage/security guys could be more friendly too. When you get there ask for a map and try the foot massage next door (great!)

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet and clean. Very impressed with the management of this hotel

We arrived at Tara's place after a 20 hour flight and were so happy with our choice. The staff spoke English, were very helpful and offered suggestions on what to do and eat.

A good mix if travellers were staying there so not a romantic getaway.
It's is a few blocks from khao San road so your close to TW action but can sleep at night.

Rooms were nice ad clean.

Thumbs up!
